    lol@ her ugly comment. Decent review. One thing most reviewers are almost universal about liking is the preformance. And universal in hating is battery life...lol. Most seem to like the screen overall too.

    One of the reasons not to get it is because there is no white subpixel which is why the whites are not white. Also the speaker rattle seems common and a hardware issue.

    That is not correct.
    Up until recently there were no sub-pixel/pixel whites in *ANY* LCD and whites are white.
    Until pentile displays became common with a white pixel element the standard was a Bayer or modified Bayer pattern with 2G,1B and 1 R.
    No white.

    The calibration of the AMOLED is the reason and nothing else.
